Summer Illinois Math (SIM) Camp is a week-long math day camp for middle and high school students hosted by the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign Department of Mathematics. Campers will see the creative, discovery driven side of mathematics. By showing them some of the ways mathematicians approach problems, SIM Camp hopes to encourage them to continue studying math beyond the high school level.
We will return to a two camp schedule for 2019 SIM Camp. In the past, our funding sources, particularly the Department's Mathways Grant, has allowed us to keep camp free for all campers. However, with Mathways expiring we will no longer able to run SIM camp for free. We are currently anticipating that we would have to charge participants around $200 in tuition in order to run the camp as before. We are working on finding new funding sources to lower this amount.
Please consider donating to the Department of Mathematics Outreach fund, which supports our Summer Illinois Math camp and other outreach initiatives. Your support helps our department fulfill Illinois’s land grant mission.
- SIM Camp Epsilon is for rising 8th or 9th grade students who have taken a pre-algebra class.
